Trimble select Chennai Institute of Technology as first educational centre of excellence in India

Trimble has appointed Chennai Institute of Technology (CIT) as the first Educational Centre of Excellence in India for their Trimble Buildings business division. The main objective of this initiative is to educate technology students and ensure that the future engineers are well equipped with technology skills that the growing Indian industry employers value.

P Sriram, Chairman, Chennai Institute of Technology said, “This will help us in providing and teaching our students the latest technologies like Building Information Modeling (BIM). With the growing demand for infrastructure, there is a need to adopt new technologies such as BIM which will not only minimize the errors but will also help in enhancing better productivity, thus creating huge demand for BIM professionals.”

The Chennai Institute of Technology provides quality technical education with adequate industrial exposure with its innovative teaching methods. The institute will include a special certification course on Trimble’s Design Build Operate (DBO) technology in their curriculum where they will teach their students on Tekla BIM technology and also other Trimble Buildings construction solutions. The course will make the students industry ready with BIM skills. On the other hand, this education boosts the adoption of BIM within Indian construction industry.

Nirmalya Chatterjee, Executive Director & COO Trimble Buildings SAARC said “We believe in educating the next generation with the latest technologies as this partnership will benefit the students and provide the industry with a larger talent pool. Together with CIT we ensure that the best professional education is offered to students keen on joining the industry. This new Centre for Excellence allows technology experts upgrade their skills which will benefit the industry in the future.”

Trimble will assist CIT to setup a technology lab in the college, which will allow their students to learn construction software solutions such as ‘Tekla Structures’ for structural and civil engineering, ‘SketchUp’ for architectural and ‘Vico Office’ for project cost estimation. Trimble in India will also conduct training sessions at CIT to enable the faculty members and students to explore Trimble’s DBO technology.  Additionally, refresher seminars will keep them regularly updated on newer advancements.

“Rajan Aiyer , Country Manager, Trimble SAARC said “Trimble endeavors to apply state-of-the-art technology solutions involving Positioning, Communications, Sensing and Analytics to the work processes of  traditional industries like Agriculture , Engineering & Construction, Field solutions, and Transportation & Logistics to transform the way they work. Our newly launched Trimble Buildings India entity will facilitate the use of such innovative solutions in vertical construction markets in India “
